on this, on the floor of the united states senate, but i don't think that senator harry reid even brings it to the senate floor because he has six democrats up for election in two years in states were the president received fewer than 42% of the votes. and he doesn't want his democrats to have to choose between their own constituents and the president's positions. >> what about immigration? seems too me that is something in the interest of the republican party that you-all would like to see get passed, some kind of immigration reform. will that happen this year? >> i mean, i'm child of immigrants. that is the history of this country. immigration is good and important for our country. legal immigration needs to really be modernized. marco rubio is working on that we need to find ways. we are educating so many people and then telling them to leave the country who are from other countries, go back, with he don't want you here. we have issues of labor that we need additional labor. we need to deal with immigration and i think we will, candy. >> quickly, you're on the committee that will list

for harry reid. he wants to keep the majority and republicans feel that democrats could overreach. this could be a political win for them. but the president will push very heart, no doubt about it. jon: he says he will push very hard. he promised that yesterday. he will do everything in necessary power to get things done. one of the things in his power is pick up the phone and call harry reid i need this out of the senate. i need to you approve this. >> that's right. the president will have to make some calls to these conservative-leaning democrats who will be on the fence. that is not something he did in his first term. he will have to really push this. this could be a win-win for the white house they ask for everything, don't get everything and blame congress for only getting a few things through. of course the house is not going to move anything until the senate does. democrats also say, the ones that want these gun control provisions, they have to move very quickly. senator patrick leahy will hold hearings. the momentum is clearly now in the aftermath of the tragedy in connect

's time for the senate to lead. on climate change, let harry reid to see if they can do something. it's their turn. let the senate pass a budget. on guns, i'd be interested to see if they can pass a an obama-style coalition to do what the president is asking for. that's a big change. the house, one of the things they need to do smarter is not see a plank and swim with sharks. let harry reid lead and see what they can do. i think the president will have a lot fewer followers than he thinks. >> harry reid is as able senate leader. i love seeing him lead. it's interesting that ari is counseling at least on tv counseling republicans not to lead. look, that's easy for the republicans. they used to say -- ari and i are both baseball fans. the house controlled by the republicans are where good ideas go to die and that's apparently what speaker boehner is being advised to do now. i think it's a terrible mistake. he could come and make deals and meet the president halfway but it looks like i think they are going to go back to their constructionism. that's not a good strategy. >> all right. we'

just mentioned, martha, it has been almost four years since harry reid and the democrats have passed a budget. i think there is a larger point here. everybody in washington, especially the democrats, are celebrating the republicans blinked here and there is no question they blinked in the showdown with the president and are giving him another three-month debt extension. you know the real problem and i just want to make this point, the problem isn't whether we are going to have a debt limit showdown, the problem is that we are borrowing $16.4 trillion. all we are doing here, martha to be realistic about it is we are saying, coach doing what you're doing, we are going to keep borrowing at the same pace. this is not a solution. martha: matt, i look at this i feel like every time there is a so-called deadline we all know that the deadlines are so squishy and congress always figures out some way not to have to feel with the deadline and live in the real world and get the work done. i think people are sick to death of this. >> we've almost become numb to it i think. last year when this was
